Expressing your affinity for western in your home can be done subtly with a few carefully placed home accessories such as: western lamps, Navaho or Zapotec rugs or rustic bedding. Or you can complete your cowboy, western or lodge décor look with just the right piece.
Western pillows are an easy way to add a little of the West to a room. Choose from carefully hand beaded beauties that are museum quality to fun, cowboy themed appliqué pillows. Some are made of buckskin others of beautiful weavings, still others are made of beautiful fabrics with a carefully placed concho.
Western lamps can be cut steel, burl with a rawhide or mica shade or perhaps you want one of hand wrought iron with beaded insets and a parfleche shade. Add a hand blown glass globe to a subtle iron sconce and your dark corner sparkles with western panache.
Add color and themes to a room using rugs. Choose a western themed rug with a bronc rider in its center to embrace the Wild West or a beautifully hand woven rug to express your love of southwestern décor.
Use rustic bedding in the form of buckskin coverlets for your bed with hand twisted fringe skimming the floor, add stacks of pillows and a fur throw, faux or real, and Viola! Your western spirit comes shining through.
Western Window coverings can be one of the most adaptable western decorations. Use floor length leather drapes with beaded edges or a simple rough edge leather valance to add western elegance to a room. Consider using a Pendleton Blanket draped between horseshoe hangers as a casual piece of western window décor.
Western Home Accessories can be fun, serious, casual or formal. The key is to use them to express your own western style.
